Introducing Bobby Gill
Bobby Gill is today’s guest joining us on the Join Up Dots Podcast interview.
He is a man who since 2001 has had a fascination with coding and technology
Starting work as a QA Engineer for a company, which he quite readily admits that “I cant find the right words that could do any justice to my time here. 5 – 10 lines of blank text should more than suffice.”
He then moved steadily though a series of positions that filled his days with programming, and more than a bit of messing around.
One company paid him, whilst Bobby joined a gang of eager programmers and developers to work on a slime basketball game….ok they didn’t know they were paying him to do this, but hey more fool them, they should have managed a little bit closer I think.
But when Microsoft took a chance on him, then things started getting serious, and he realised that the time of playing was coming to an end.
How The Dots Joined Up For Bobby Gill
Whizz forward a few years, and Bobby Gill is now the founder of Blue Label Labs, a New York based mobile design and development lab for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
So how has he done this?
How did he take the leap of faith that allowed him to leave the corporate environment as an employee, and build his own business (one not focused on slime basketball I can only imagine)
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only Bobby Gill.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
We all define our own path in life, you just need to go out and get whatever you want!
How plans can actually be the thing that stops you doing anything, due to the concept of what you want to achieve being too large to commence work!
How he takes his phone into the bathroom with him at all times, just to give himself something to do!! (That one needs two exclamation marks)
How Weetabix is the greatest food substance on earth!
How many dwarves he would be able to fight off before they over take him in a death match!
